Instrument & Supplies
Music education should to be accessible to all local youth in Tucson and Pima County. All necessary materials (including loaner instruments, when needed) are provided to our students, school age children (pre-K through 12), whose parents can’t afford to give their children these advantages.
Recitals & Performances
Students invite friends and family to their recitals to share their progress in developing their musical skills. These performances teach the students life skills as well as give the students a clear goal and sense of accomplishment, while having fun discovering the world of music.
